Alexandria Aces fans at 2014 home opener at frank Mann field in Alexandria, VA

As we told you here, June 2015 was the second-wettest month on record for Alexandria, Virginia. As such, that rain has wreaked havoc on the Alexandria Aces 2015 schedule. The Aces have released an updated schedule for the remainder of July to work in previously canceled and/or suspended games.

The Aces remain in contention for one of six Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League playoff slots and they play decent baseball for a GREAT price! So get out and catch a game! I will see you at Frank Mann Field!

Flooding at Braddock Road & North West Street in the Braddock Road Metro neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia
June 2015 was the second-wettest month on record for Alexandria. Multiple storms produced rainfall faster than storm drains could handle flow, resulting in some ground flooding and sewer backups.  The City of Alexandria has worked to resolve issues as soon as possible when they involve City infrastructure.  However, many issues on private property are simply the result of too much rain. The City urges residents to take necessary precautions to prevent flooding and sewer backups when possible.
